Raúl Cantizano and ‘Los Voluble’ feature this Saturday's show, and the in-residence "Cabin fever" finishes on that day



The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the islands’ Minister of Culture Enrique Arriaga. This week two initiatives of the NUMAcircuit Festival (Creation and Experimentation Festival of the Canary Islands) are presented. On Saturday, 22 May, the in-residence 'Cabin fever' finishes with the presentation of a show that is already sold out: the audio-visual concert Zona Acordonada by Raúl Cantizano and ‘Los Voluble’ at 7:30 pm in the Chamber Hall. Tickets for this show are still available.

‘Zona acordonada' is a hybrid and transmedia guitar concert. Musicians use guitar, electronics, flamenco and live audiovisual creation to pull on the strings, to shift points of view and to show our society, art and culture during this "new normality”.

The aim of this project is to research into a new scenic, visual, performative and musical language, expanding the usual space that the guitar player has. This atypical recital broadens the guitar space with lighting, live video, action and music to create a renewed and modern format. It also gathers different ways of understanding the stage and the instrument, from its most classical to its most innovative dimension.

Raúl Cantizano and ‘Los Voluble’ have been working together since the year 2012. The different methodologies and interest in working with flamenco style from unusual and different perspectives led them to create DEF ‘DiálogosElectroFlamencos’ (Electronic-Flamenco Dialogues) together with Santiago Barber. These Electronic-Flamenco Dialogues open up spaces in the flamenco style to further search for mediation, training and experimentation. They also design other creative methodological devices for artistic and social reflection.

The artistic in-residence Cabin fever approaches concepts like eroticism, power and isolation. To do so, the artists use aesthetic and expressive tools such as body and object’s movement, sound (of bodies, voice, instruments and objects), video, space itself and its potential transformations.

The member artists of this in-residence are María García Fuentes (technical production, set design and lighting designer) Cristina Hernández Cruz (dance, performance, actress), Alejandra Galo (audio-visual narrator, scriptwriter and cultural firebrand) and Elsa Mateu Tricás (cellist, lighting designer and set designer).

Through these disciplines, the in-residence aims to generate a code that relates them, that transmits and evokes the different experiences and feelings born of all those concepts. Cabin fever is an erotic-immersive experience that shows how our senses produce an emotion that is transmitted through euphoria in all its forms.
